Childcare fee support for the city(区の保育料支援)

  • このエントリーをはてなブックマークに追加

We compared the districts of the 23 wards where it is easy to raise children. The Tokyo Metropolitan Government’s support has always been generous, so I would like to check the efforts of each ward regarding childcare fees, which tend to vary from ward to ward and have a large cost burden!

In the case of Minato City

For Minato Ward residents who live with their parents (including elementary school students, etc.), childcare for the second and subsequent children counted in descending order of age is free. Extended childcare fees will be charged.

In the case of Itabashi Ward

From October of Reiwa 5, childcare fees will be free from the second child onwards. In addition to children from households exempt from resident tax, the 0~2-year-old class has been free of charge for children from the second child onwards from October 5th year of Reiwa.

In the case of Shinagawa Ward

From April of the 5th year of Reiwa, in Shinagawa Ward, the childcare fee of licensed nursery schools will be free from the second child onwards.

This system is a differential subsidy as follows, so in the case of a second child, you can receive up to the maximum subsidy amount of 66,000 yen.

If the childcare fee of a certified childcare center exceeds 66,000 yen, the parent or guardian will be responsible for the difference. (By the way, 66,000 yen seems to be an amount that can only be exceeded by people who exceed 502,000 yen in the resident tax income rate, so it is almost free of charge.)

In the case of Setagaya Ward

With the introduction of free early childhood education and childcare from October of the first year of Reiwa, childcare fees have been made free for all households in the 3~5-year-old class, households exempt from resident tax in the 0~2-year-old class, and children from the third child onward.

When I checked a few years ago, the installation efforts differed depending on the ward, and there was a situation where there was a difference of 1 million yen in one year depending on whether it was free or not, so I was carefully considering this area! Recently, the system has been rapidly enhanced, and it seems that there is not that much difference!

Incidentally, I would also like to mention the free early childhood education and childcare in Tokyo 

From October 1 of the first year of Reiwa, children between the ages of 3 and 5 who use kindergartens, licensed nursery schools, certified children’s kindergartens, etc. will be free of charge.

Therefore, the childcare fee for 0-year-old and 1-year-old classes will change depending on the measures of the ward.
